Hi Husky65, I was just wondering who you use to host your photos. Yours are still working.
Thanks Neil.
Sorry mate just saw this, I just use random free sites that come up when I google 'free hosting'.

Wow, very nice, you need to call a plumber. :grin:  Do you have all the bits to go with it?

Yeah purchased 2nd hand with all the mounting kit. There's actually quite a bit sitting on my shelves now, just waiting for some time off work.

Car has been off the road for a bit doing some upgrades and cleaning up the engine bay....latest image here. Will post up more later on.

Definitely needs to lose those hipo manifolds for some headers :grin: :grin:

ha ha, mate I will see how restrictive they are first. I'm sure I'll add them, and you'll be the first to know  :cheers:

I have a spare set of ceramic coated shorties, but I'm assuming they won't fit your P heads

Do tell? I have been thinking of getting a set of Hedman elite shorties but they are red hot even with the coating  :lmao: :lmao:

The motor I'm buying has a set of Hedman shorties on it, plus I've got some ceramic shorties. 

Don't know which ones I'll end up using.

His engine bay is already a Tardis with somehow more stuff in there than can actually fit.

Thanks Dwayne but I'm going to try the hipos first and see the result. I really do like the ease of changing spark plugs with them  :lol:

And Geoff, yes your right, once I get everything to fit I'll be a happy man

Certainly looks the business. How much boost are you planning on running?

Thanks fellas. It was a massive pain in the ass to be honest, nothing just fit, everything had to be touched up.
Anyway, was pretty happy when it started up first time and seems to be running fine. Haven't hit boost yet.
It's running a Haltech Elite ecu now with sequential fueling and ls3 coils off a crank trigger.

The pulley on the novi 2000 is the stock one. I think on a stock 302 they are quoted around 10-12psi. So maybe 8-10psi on mine?? I don't know, I guess I'll find out on the dyno. Only going to rev it to 5500, and am being very safe on the timing due to the hyper pistons I have. Plus I decided to keep the gt40p heads, which don't like a lot of timing. I added arp studs though.

I have added water/methanol injection though, so that will bring the intake temps down and will allow a bit more of timing.

Thatís about twice the boost I was expecting. Looks like youíre going to find out how strong a T5 is.  :burnout:

The blower is too big. The only way I can get lower boost is to change gears at 3000rpms ha ha.

Don't worry I am tracking that. I already have a parts list for a new transmission.

Thanks mate!

I forgot to update this.

So ended up getting the Haltech fully tuned, everything from idle to switchable maps for meth on/off.

It made 330rwhp at 5500 @10psi. The hipo manifolds were holding it back big time. You could see it just stopped breathing after 5500. I expected them to hold it back, but not as much as they did. Regardless of that, it drives great now. Haven't taken it out much yet due to the sydney heat, but will soon.

My next round of mods are on the way from the states. I'm not going to bother upgrading the headers on the gt40p heads. I have some TW 170 heads that I will put on towards the end of the year, including headers. Stay tuned

How much extra torque did it make? Will you swap the cam when you do the heads?

I can see this giving 400rwhp a nudge with heads, extractors and cam.

Made 90ft lb extra torque at the wheels.

Plan at this stage is to keep the cam. It should work well the boost. With extractors only I think we would be pushing towards 380-400rwhp. The hipos are restricting us to 5500rpm before it just dies. With headers I have another 1000rpm to play with. With heads and extractors we would be looking more towards 450-500rwhp. We will see later on.
 I have the biggest pulley on the novi still also. Got a few smaller sizes here that are talking to me :grin:

Good news is the T5 survived the dyno runs....we will see how long it lasts :bolt:

T5's can handle a lot of abuse, its power shifting that kills them.
